Christopher Michael Holt (born September 18, 1971) is a former pitcher for the Houston Astros (1996–1997 and 1999–2000) and Detroit Tigers (2001). He was a member of the Astros' National League Central Division champions in 1997 and 1999.
In five seasons between Houston and Detroit, Holt compiled a Win-Loss record of 28-51. His best season came in 1997 when he finished with a 8-12 record along with a 3.52 ERA for the division champion Astros. After 1997, he pitched three mediocre seasons for Houston and Detroit and has never again pitched in MLB. On April 28, 2000, he tossed a one-hitter against the Milwaukee Brewers. In 2003 his former manager, Larry Dierker, blasted Holt in his memoir for expecting clubhouse personnel to wash his car before he returned home from a road trip.
Following his major league career, he pitched two seasons in Japan for the Yokohama BayStars.
Holt now resides in Coppell, Texas and worked for Frontier Tank Lines.
